Break the ice or wait till it melts!

[Based on a true life story] ๐Ÿ˜€

Kurty told me the other day over some conversation that it was difficult for him to break the ice, but once he does he can sail in pretty smoothly. What about me? Do I have the same problem? – Phew! I think I have that problem too! It’s called breaking the ice & sometimes it can also be called breaking the face. One quick inputs from my wannabe rockstar friend was pick-up lines. I feel pick-up lines with all those add-ons don’t work. I asked him a few examples of pick-up lines and here’s what he had to say – it’s just a few of his whole lot!

Did the sun come out or did you just smile at me?

You see my buddy there? He wants to know if you think I’m cute, smart and sexy

Do you have a map? (She says: No, why?) Because I keep getting lost in your eyes

If you were a tear in my eye, I would not cry for fear of losing you

The last time I saw you, I was dreaming

Funny isn’t it? Later I realised I could find all of these in the web. My friend has a book full of pick-up lines and he carries them all the time. Ok – I just made this one. Pick-up lines can be funny but it’s not encouraging for the girl. The least she could do is smile or the worst she would do is slap! You don’t want to be there in either of the scenarios.

So what else can one do? Maybe a smile. Just a plain smile. I have tried this and many times what followed was ignorance. Some girls can be rude or they just wanna make you look funny. She might give you the worst look as if you did something disgusting. Some sweet girls smile back and others smile at everybody claiming to have a sweet smiling face – you want to stay away from those. My take on a smile is – A smile might work sometimes only, you should try it once!

The safest bet is to be yourself. Just move your ass and start a striking conversation. A conversation should follow after being enough observant. What she wears? what she holds? Is she a gadget(ipods,cell phones, portable dvd players) freak or she reads a lot? All this would just help you start a conversation with her. Now when you start a conversation, try not to kill the conversation. Ask her a question for which she has to explain the answer and not finish up by saying yes or no. Do you love to read? Vs You are a reading freak, how come you can read all the time?

It’s easier said than done. All I know is it’s more harder than you imagine it would be to start a conversation. A bit of confidence might show you a way.

Being punched on the face a numerous times, signing out in dysphoria!!

Special thanks to Divya aka Sheval, Shveta, Neets & Kurt!

    Nice post mate…

    Its a fact tht Breaking Ice is the major part in any relationship. And plz dont think of the guys who cant ‘break the ice’ as losers, they are actually scared tht in their efforts to ‘break the ice’ they might shoo away the gals they like… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jeez! Kurt & gang look just straight out of the Archies comic book. And you are just a bubblegum romance author. Before you frown, take that as a compliment guys. It just looks as if you are out of a SRK-Kajol flick. Anyways…this was a good try.

    But try twisting the tale. What if girls were to do it? Well, if they can “go to outer-space” and yelp for “33% reservation” in the Parl, they can “break the ice” too.

    Grr…why am I even writing this? Ok before any one mistakes me as a misogynist, lemme set my record straight.

    In one line, I was just fantasizing as to what would it look like if the guys were wooed or serenaded. Cool, uncool, No, Yes…pour in your comments! I am ready for some action. Bloody is this going to be ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @kurt – yes we are not losers, we are not losers!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It can be called a romantic failure! ๐Ÿ™‚

    @bro – a bubblegum romance author – my @$$!! huh! I like the idea of girls wooing me! All you girls out there – you can woo me as many times as you want and I wont shoo you away! Rhyming, isnt it? LOL!

    BTW, its ass. Go change your lappy! LOL

    hey you should write a whole big book on pataoing girls…probably i can give you some bit of insight into all that ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. RJ said,

    @Gayathri – The book is not a good idea – see its me who’s in the receiving end :D. But I would like to know your insight & try to use it sometime.

    Keep smiling, keep writing & stay healthy

    I hope this gives in some strength to guys and also wish that it doesn’t make them over confident that they just indulge in any kind of boring conversation ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. gauri said,

    yea romantic failures, indeed Mr. Raja! tats the positive for “Loosers” ๐Ÿ˜›

    just kiddin!!!

    nice write-up ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. RJ said,

    @neetu – we are not over confident neetu, the girls are over demanding these days ๐Ÿ˜€

    @gauri – Are you trying to hint that guys make an attempt to break the ice and not succeed are losers?

    Thanks for your comments guys!
